The secret to a long lasting flawless makeup finish is in careful/detailed application and more...
From ensuring the face is free from oil/dirt, not piling on foundation but instead of building up application till desired coverage is gotten, applying a long lasting makeup that sits pretty on the face requires blending and gradual application (and on a clean canvas/face).

There are tips and tricks for a long lasting makeup application that works for everyday application:
1. Apply foundation from the centre of the face and work the product outward instead of starting outward and working the products inwards/into the face. Applying foundation from the outside and wearing it heavy instead of gradually applying/buildup the foundation makes the hairline and edges look funny and application too artificial as against natural looking.
When the foundation is applied from the centre of the face, the product is distributed evenly and flawless.
2. Don't touch the face! Constantly touching the facial skin through the day transfer oils on the face and on makeup making them lacklustre and wear off- there's also the case of transferring germs on the face which results in breakouts.
Gently dabbing on the face with blotting paper or a facial towelette works better to ensure makeup stays in place.
3. Always ensure makeup is done on a clean face devoid of oily lotions/moisturizer. Start off makeup by removing excess oil and dirt (make sure the face is squeaky clean) Pat the skin dry then apply non-comedogenic lotion on the skin, leave on the skin for a few seconds to sink in then start makeup application.
A clean face allows makeup products to sit well as well as last.
